'Investigation Into Alleged Gatherings On Government Premises During COVID Restrictions', alternatively titled, 'The Case of the Forbidden Jamborees' is a 44-page satirical political zine...
It’s an alternative look at the Partygate scandal, written as a murder mystery party hosted by Boris Johnson at No10 Downing Street. It approaches the scandal via various murder mystery scenarios, in which guests uncover clues pertaining to whether officials, Ministers and Special Advisors held parties over periods of national lockdown. The zine is prefaced with a fake psychological report, inspired by JG Ballard’s ‘Why I Want To Fuck Ronald Reagan’.
